Here it is

Standard

Tell the truth. To yourself.

This life is nothingness at it’s greatest form.

Enlightening.

  
The birth of imagination. Dreams, words,works of art, intelligence. From the B.C’s thru the A.D’s to currently from marks put on slabs to scrolls of unknown authors. All means nothing. Are worth nothing. Yet we put a price on everything. 

Friendships. Kindness. Help. The need to do to receive. Fraudulent. All these things are free. They require nothing. Emotions =free. Feelings=free. If you truly have them then they’re given freely✨

To heal oneself is the enlightment.  To make peace with the past become more present. Tada! You now hold the key to your future. What are you going to do with it?

I choose to write with mine. I choose to help with mine. I choose to be kind with mine. I choose to love with mine. It’s the picture that you paint for your soul that will become the lifestyle that you end up living.

Choose wisely it will only cost you the rest of your life.

Understanding 

Standard
Understanding 

Have you ever been joking around with someone and they start to tickle you? 

First it feels weird. Then it may feel silly so you start to laugh and yell stop in the mist of your laughter. But when your done with it and the person doesn’t stop tickling you a little panic sets in. Anxiety takes over and now your either yelling, kicking and hitting or crying because the person took the joke too damn far. This unfortunately means that there was a breakdown in understanding.

  
That’s where I am today. I’m done being tickled. I’m no longer laughing at the joke that life keeps trying to play on me. When I love someone really love someone I’m not in the mood for games. My heart breaks like anyone else and my dreams for the future are as important as anything else. 

I made a decision to chase my dreams. A little bit late, but better now than never. I’m relying on the heavens above to point me in the right direction as I do the work. I’m concentrating on calming the storm within and listening to the hum of the universe. I’m being careful not to let my ego take over. 

I can write about being a better person. I can write about finding peace. I can write about standing in my truth but if I’m not willing to walk the walk I’m a fraud to myself. I’m not being honest with myself and that eventually that would make me dishonest with anyone reading this blog. 

I’m real serious about this walk. I’m real serious about living an in a attitude of gratitude and I’m beyond serious about finding love. Make no mistake that I’m still human. I hurt, I cry, I hope for the future but I’m doing all these things in reality. I love, I guide and I live with my decisions. I’m thankful on a daily basis. I’m grateful that I was given this chance. I literally thought that I told everyone who helped guide me on this journey thank you. I thought I covered my past with a blessing and I started walking in peace. 

That’s all I can do. 

Walk. Forward.

  
I forgive the past I pray the past has forgiven me. I’m happy and healthy. My mind is at ease. I’m looking forward to the future whatever it may be. Namaste has become my way of life. I got on my knees and asked the divine for the things that I wanted in the world. From that day I started to prepare myself for my prayers to be answered. I’m preparing myself for my dreams to be manifested in real life ,in real time, and with real people.

No matter how hard it feels to be out of my comfort zone I keep going. I had an amazing coach who taught me to push past the tears to face my fears and get out of my own way. I hope he takes his own advice. 

There’s greatness out here in these streets. There’s hope for a better tomorrow and there’s changes to be made for anyone who’s willing to change. That’s what I’ve learned on this journey. 

Love resides inside of me. I’m thankful to be able to write about it. To be able to share my gratitude to others and for the people who have helped me along the way. I know that there’s love waiting on me as I walk into my destiny. I know that I’m going the right direction and that I’m on a beautiful path. I’m enjoying the views and taking mental pictures as I say  “Thank you universe for another day of life!!!!”

It’s another gorgeous Tuesday morning. The day has beautiful gifts to be uncovered and hope goes a long way when I’m tired and running out of zen. 

The power within hits the recharge button. I then listen to a little music and I open my heart up to the love surrounding me. 

Here’s a quick way to release some tension through yoga.

My forward attitude

Standard

Tuesday. Second day of the week. The day before humday. For those who get to do some humping. Unfortunately I’m not one of those….meh.

I’m sitting around thinking what the lesson for today was. Self reflection is as important as self esteem. The need to build up others also includes yourself. As I do that I know that I need to be careful not to constantly feed my ego. Some days are harder than others. My flaws don’t determine my worth. I ask that the universe continues to remind me to embrace, replace, and rebuild my spirit to fulfill my plan for life. 

  
The picture in my head may not be the same as someone’s else’s. That’s okay differences makes the world go around. The energy pull from negatives and positives still pulls the universe. But to where? Is the final destination the same?

Work work work. Do it, if it fully makes you happy. When the check marks are checked off, do you sleep peacefully at night. 

Anger. Have it, if it fully comes with happiness and hope for a better way of living. When the check marks are made, do you sleep peacefully at night. 

Forgive. Find it, if it fully comes with your actual soul finding it’s comfort. 

The point I’m making is be honest with who you are. As I have to be honest with who I am. I’m changing my world around me bit by bit. When I extend my love and light to others there’s a shift of attitude to myself and anyone who feels where I’m coming from. I’m grateful to use my voice, resources and gifts to contribute. It mends the broken pieces. 

I guess I’m ready for us all to be meanders in real life. I’m an person who tries to be a better human. I don’t always do that.

 So on the days I can’t be a healer I’ve learned to remain inside my lane. I’m not here to change folks. I’m here to express how I’m changing, but that takes action. Words aren’t enough. Work isn’t enough when the worker is sick, unhealthy, depressed and crazy. That builds chaos. The world has enough of that.

Today I’m reminding myself and you to let go of the pain. Unless you like pain. 

For every action there’s a little hope for grace and mercy. When I can’t be nice I know it’s time to be attentive to my own issues. It becomes time to go a different route. If I feel depressed it becomes time to think in a higher mindset. If I feel unhappy it’s time to let go of the need for something outside and heal the things inside of myself.  So that I can continue to be the light that shines for others. 

  
Simplicity is beautiful. One small change can lead to bigger results and the world becomes a better place just by living in my truths. When I’m writing I want to bring hope to the hopeless. Bring acceptance to those who don’t feel accepted and blessings to the planet. This may be a hippy mindset. A little too soft in a hard world, but that’s me. I’m a lover not a warrior but I stand in my gentleness and it’s as powerful as any sword. 

Today turned out fine. My heart is intact and my mind is at ease. Gratitude turned my attitude into my peaceful Tuesday night.

Ego trip

Standard

Woke up with a new attitude. A good one. Happy to feel grounded instead in a celestial state at all times. 

Got up to call around for a reality job. Well that’s what I call a job that isn’t pursuing your God given talents. Or your DNA embedded talent for my non believing friends. 

As I was walking I heard that wonderful ego voice in my head. Mine likes to talk sh*t about situations we can not control. Wondering why the things that would work perfectly for me will not work for another. 

Even with full understanding of the differences between each other in general. I still want almost perfection of the meeting of the minds. The importance of being on the same page. 

I sigh thinking about it. Let the breathing work of my lungs try to push out the feeling of longing. Waiting to feel better is a little overrated when the things you’ve attached to your happiness belong in the hands of someone else.

Today I’m going to make sure I know how beautiful I am. Head to toe. Voice and strength. Mind, body, and soul. I want to remind anyone reading how exactly beautiful that you are. Problems and all. 

The days get better. The pain goes away if you’re ready for it to leave and tomorrow begins again.

Dog day

Standard

The phrase dog days usually means hot days of summer. Well we came cross some form of a dog day today.

Got up this morning with a smile on my face. Went to a CVS pharmacy to grab some trash bags for packing. Not the fanciest form of luggage but you do what you gotta do.

Since I was actually looking forward to moving out of the hotel I felt at ease. Me and the boys decided swim. We hadn’t gone swimming all summer so it was good to enjoy the moment.

Some guys show up for the ex. They just so happen to be our ride to the Amtrak train station. We load up everything we brought. Dogs included. We arrive at the station early. Found out that the train doesn’t allow plastic bags or dogs. 

Go figure.

I start to scramble to fit things from the plastic bags into luggage. Trying to find homes for both dogs becomes the real struggle. Diamond the pit puppy finds a home instantly. Kaydon the mixed breed couldn’t find a home. There was a nice lady calling her friend to see if he could stay.

I pray everything went well. 

Once again trip California has brought us to our knees. If I was keeping a tally Cali definitely won for the worst stuff that can happen in a matter of months. But just like this train we keep pressing on. With heat in the chest and dogs gone like the wind. Today is what it is.

I have no clue how tomorrow is gonna turn out. I’m not sure if it’s important to know. Or even anticipate it. It’s truly not worth the trouble to think about it. 

I’m feeling the vibration of this train. Letting life run it’s course and feeling peace deeper than anything that I’ve ever felt before.

Dirty

Standard

The aftermath of destruction is messy.

It’s like waking up after a wet dream and realizing the spot on the bed came from you.

Scrubbing out the blemishes on our worldly resume with one swipe of the alt delete key.

Rebuilding oneself isn’t erasing the flaws and misplaced views. But it’s ownership of the things we are willing to change.  Cleaning up after the storm and leaning towards a better future.

Up 

Standard

Late night thoughts and a vision of a new way or new day so to speak. 

My mind is usually full of new concepts and world advice. 

Seeing things from different angles. I often think of change or the wasted opportunities for change. 

In a planet where everything is designed to coexist amongst each other. There seems to be the need to rule or capture things that don’t need to be caught. 

Simply put, leave life to be lived. Help where you can. Be a good steward and stop trying to be in command.

Obviously this is just my opinions. 

I dream of a life more beautiful. I believe the governed should ultimately govern themselves. But in a world gone mad is that really a possibility? 

Are we so unpredictable that knowledge of our every move is needed. Should mankind be feared? Should there be fear? Was that taught to us to control or did we create it?

It’s 2:15 a.m and I’m up with my over active mind. Searching timelines for inspiration. Boredom often keeps me busy. Seems like an oxymoron…

The need not to waste time is a waste in itself. 

Beautiful Saturday morning. Earlier than I expected to be up. Ready to be on the road. But not entirely. I thought of a different outcome. A different paradox. Thankfully I can always create a pretty picture out of anything I receive.

When I’m grateful for the now. The future seems brighter.
